"Beyond The Sun" will reach and delight a wide audience of people. Older listeners will remember the original songs. Younger people will appreciate these covers performed by Chris Issak. My favorite is "Live It Up". This is not a classic song, but it has the same upbeat tone of a song from the fifties. His guitar playing on this track is superb. Chris covers the Roy Orbison classic "Oh Pretty Woman". This is one of my all time favorite songs. This is the best tribute for pretty women every where. "Great Balls Of Fire" is a song that makes me want to dance. The keyboarding playing is excellent on this track. "Can't Help Falling In Love is simply one of the best love songs of all time. Chris really moves me on this song. Chris covers a few Johnny Cash tunes here. He sings the song "Ring Of Fire" with such liveliness and expression. "I Walk The Line" is one of the coolest country tunes ever. Chris introduces me to a new song entitled "Dixie Fried". I have never heard this before, but I love it. It is a song about a man who is fearless. "That Lucky Old Sun" is another song I have never heard before. It is the kind of song that soothes my mind. This song is so laid back. I love the way Chris croons this tune. "I Forgot To Remember To Forget" is a song about how a woman can stay on a man's mind forever. The bass playing is great on this track. "Miss Pearl" is a song that pumps me up with energy. Issak rocks on the guitar on this track. "Miss Pearl" sounds like a brand new song. It definitely does not sound like a fifty year old tune. This is all because of the spirited delivery of the song. This is great rock and roll music.
